Tebow Time in Philly!
April 20th, 2015 by Justin Thomas
The city of brotherly love is getting a dose of Tebow Time next season, as the Eagles reached a 1-year contract agreement with the QB.
Chip Kelly’s crazy roster moves continue to make headlines and shock the world, but this one comes as a huge surprise, especially since they already traded for Sam Bradford (how that move is going to play out or be utilized further, I have no idea yet).
A plan for Tebow must be set in place if Kelly is going to contradict his previously vocalized thoughts on Tebow.
Oh. Do we not remember that? Back in 2011 when Kelly was still at Oregon, he had this to say on the former Florida Gators Heisman winner:
“I look for a quarterback who can run and not a running back who can throw,” Kelly said four years ago. “I want a quarterback who can beat you with his arm. We are not a Tim Tebow type of quarterback team. I am not going to run my quarterback 20 times on power runs.”
The Eagles actually don’t seem to have anyone on their roster who can beat you handily with his arm as Tebow joins Bradford and former Jets teammate, Mark Sanchez. The three Eagles quarterbacks all hold spots within the top five worst Total QBR numbers in the NFL over the past five years.
Nobody knows for sure what the Eagles are going to look like when the season rolls around, but we can all rest easy knowing one thing:
He is back!
